Microsoft has be working on to develop the upcoming new task manager, and has released a video on how the new Windows 8 Task manager handles functions. Microsoft has optimized the default view of Task Manager in Windows 8 with quick and easy access to end tasks. There’s no more tabs in the default view and the menu bar is no longer present.

Microsoft focused on the following changes for Windows 8:

  • Optimize Task Manager for the most common scenarios
  • Use modern information design to achieve functional goals
  • Don’t remove functionality
